Ecovacs Deebot N79S Review

By on May 10, 2020 in Indoor with 0 Comments

Finding a robot vacuum that is relatively cheap yet offers quite advanced features is like finding a needle in a haystack. It’s you pay a big amount of money for a robot vacuum with smart and advanced features or pays with a budget and get a robot vacuum with at least decent performance. 

Well, with Ecovacs Deebot N79S, you wouldn’t have to choose! With its affordable price, you will still be able to have a luxurious experience with your vacuum. 

What to Expect?

Upon purchase, expect to receive a box that contains the robot, a charging dock, four side brushes, two cleaning cloths, a cloth plate, and a high-efficiency filter. 


The setup is pretty simple. You will just have to download the Ecovacs application to connect your N79S to your Wi-Fi. After downloading, choose the model that you have from the options that Ecovacs will give. However, you should note that this robot vacuum does not support 5GHz Wi-Fi, so you have to make sure you have 2.4GHz Wi-Fi.

The application would show the current status of your robot vacuum and the battery-charge level at the top of the screen. You can use the robot vacuum manually with the steering pad located at the center of your screen. It also features some buttons for various cleaning modes – edge, spot, single room, and auto – and for recharge button that are all placed in the bottom part of the screen. 


Structure and Design

This robot vacuum is made similar to other Ecovacs models with its simple, circular shape. It is colored black which makes it look fancier. It has a button for Auto Mode and a Wi-Fi indicator placed on the brushed metal top. The power button is placed on the side. 

At the front bumper, you will be able to see its infrared sensors. The dustbin is placed on the back. Once you flip it over, you’ll see two spin brushes, a single roller brush, a nose wheel and a pair of treads.

With its height, 3.11 in, the N79S is quite small which makes it great at going for small spaces that a typical robot vacuum can’t go through. But in terms of going on narrow areas, it does quite have an issue because it’s wide with a width of 13.90 in. Weighing 9.48lbs without a carrying handle is somehow a hassle if you plan to carry it for spot cleaning. 


  • Cleaning

This robot vacuum gives you a wide variety of options for cleaning. This gives you the ability to choose what you think is the most suitable mode of cleaning you’re going to need at a specific time. For a general type of cleaning, choose the Auto mode. If you want to clean specific edges, go for Edge mode. If you need to put more intense cleaning on a specific spot, choose Spot mode. Single room mode is best if you want your robot vacuum to work only inside a specific room.

It also features a 3-stage cleaning system. This vacuum also allows users to choose Max vacuum, for dirt that can’t be easily cleaned. The main brush is V-shaped meant to sweep, lift, and vacuum all in a single pass. You can also schedule the time of cleaning with your Ecovacs application.

  • Remote Control

The remote control has all the options that you might need. You can use it to choose which cleaning mode are you going to you. It also provides the option to make a schedule with the remote. 

  • Compatibility

Aside from being able to connect with Wi-Fi to control through the app on smartphones, this robot vacuum is also compatible with the two main voice assistants: Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. By using it with Amazon Alexa, you will be able to stop or start a cleaning session. You can also order it to return to its dock. 

With Google Assistant, you will be able to do the same thing. Just remember, if you have more than one model of this, you’ll only be able to control one with either Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. 

  • Battery

This robot vacuum has a lithium-ion battery. It can work for a maximum of 100min and charges for 240min with a rated power of 25W. In case it gets a low battery, you won’t have to take action. The robot vacuum will automatically return to its charging dock. 

  • Stair Safety Technology

Ecovacs Deebot N79S won’t go falling down on the stair with its stair safety technology. With its anti-drop sensors, it can work effortlessly even on the edges of your staircase. 

  • Obstacle Detection Technology

You would not have to worry about picking it up when it bumps against objects because it surely won’t. With its anti-collision sensors and soft cushion bumpers, you can expect a soft run and safety of your furniture, 

  • Find Me

You won’t need to get up and look at your entire house when your robot can’t be found. With their find me feature, you just have to look at the app to locate your robot vacuum. 

  • High-Efficiency Filter 

This robot vacuum provides a high-efficiency filter that helps you in avoiding allergens and dust that can cause irritations and asthma. 

  • Control Anywhere

With the Ecovacs app, you can monitor and control your robot vacuum anytime and anywhere. You can make a schedule, start a cleaning session, and monitor.

Is it Noisy?

When it’s on standard mode, its noise level can be 60dB which is relatively quiet. Well, you can hear it but it’s not loud enough to be annoying and not enough to cover up conversations. Even its maximum mode does not create too much noise. 


With all the features provided, it can surely work fine. It’s known to have quite a powerful suction that’s enough to suck crumbs, dirt, dust, and even pet hair. There are some reviews that say that it bumps on some furniture on time but can still continue its work after rerouting.
